My running mix tape – Thank you Charlie


My running music is going to be very important… At the moment I am running for about 2 hours a day so the tunes need to be good. When I actually start I will be on the road for about 4 to 6 hours a day.

So people can see what I am listening to I have set up a playlist page which can be found here. Each song has a link through to music video…

On this page I have included a link so people can suggest songs they think I should listen to while covering the miles.
